Caroline is testing from Suffolk with a 1 kW rig on 648 kHz Medium Wave. They're playing continuous music with occasional identification announcements. It's a reasonable daytime signal over most of East Anglia and into parts of the Benelux, but it's trodden on at night by a powerful Slovenian station. They're begging for reception reports. Give it a listen and let them know how it's getting out to your part of the world!
Is it meant to smoke like that? :shock:

Getting it reasonably well in West Suffolk on the Pioneer tuner, I've also tried several WEBSDR's and it's audible in Doncaster, Norway, Edinburgh and Germany. (This was earlier this evening).
